Kumusta OYFAM!

We're nearing that time of the year when Bigs meet their Littles! We're also nearing that time of the year when Bigs encourage their Littles to perform at Culturefest! 

First practice is September 20th, so definitely look out for more details regarding practices.

Also, Membership, Community, and Culture are gearing up for "OYFA Where's Muh Money" penny wars. It's gonna be intense so be sure to dig up for those bills and coins or else.

D7 Representatives 

What's good OYFA,

Remember to mark your calendars for
Hoo Am I!  Hoo Am I? is a panel for A/APA members of our community to speak about their experiences on Grounds with regards to racism/micro-aggression, under-representation of A/APA community in areas outside of cultural organizations, and self-segregation of A/APA community from the rest of the university community. It will be held on September 30th, from 7-8.30pm.

We'll see y'all bigs/littles at Family Week next week!
Much mahal,
-D7 reps, Patricia (pgg3zg) and Jean (jms2wz)
Student Advisors 

Join us for office hours this Friday at 2PM in the PAV! Marc will be giving an origami lesson to whoever shows up lol. As always, if you need any advice about anything, feel free to reach out to us!

So, just as always, the first person to respond correctly to the following questions will be featured as next week's Featured OYFAN. However, anyone else who answers correctly will be entered into a raffle to win some awesome OYFA merch at the next General Meeting! You can find the answers in this WIO as well as OYFA's site
  • I know I'm going to see ALL OF YOU (idc what year you are) at the first Culture Fest practice, so just to be sure, when and where will that be? 
  • Which Big/Little week activity are you looking forward to the most? (You can't get this wrong, I just want to know!)

Featured OYFAN

Name: Daniel Mares

Graduation Year: 2017

Major: Mechanical Engineering 

What do you plan to do post-grad?
After I graduate I'll most likely just start working. If the stars align I'll hopefully end up working for BMW or Volkswagen designing cars, or maybe working for NASA. If the stars DON'T align then I'll take whatever job I can get and I'll spend my spare time building a functional Iron-Man suit.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life I'd probably go crazy somewhere between the 100th and 627th play, but I'd probably pick this song called Bolero. It's a classical song that lasts like 15 minutes and it's pretty good for studying, falling asleep, or getting hype (jk only the first two).

Favorite OYFA Memory
I remember during my first year hurricane Sandy was messing up the east coast. It hit Charlottesville right after Culturefest, and we ended up having a 4-day weekend because of the rain. Those four days were spent at my family head's (Allan Bagsic) apartment just hanging around and getting closer with a lot of OYFANs who also took refuge in his apartment, and it was honestly my favorite time... so far


That's all for this time. Thanks for making it all the way to the end. And keep answering the Trivia questions! OYFA Merch is hot. You know you want some. 

I hope you all have a good week! 

I love you all,
